Yesterday in the middle of a not-so-pleasant day, I noticed that the status lights on my laptop were blinking orange instead of green. I love orange, but blinking on my computer, it was not a happy color. It was indicating to me that my laptop batteries were completely dead, never to be recharged again. So on top of everything that was sucking, I found out that I'd need to pay $150 if I ever want to use my laptop without plugging it in.
Similarly, my body's batteries have run out. I haven't been getting the sleep I need lately. I have thought that I've been able to function properly anyway, but playing an online game with Daltongirl tonight proved otherwise. It was some word game and I kept on laying words on the board that were not actually words. I think that Daltongirl had to challenge me about seven times. I'd give you some examples, but without battery power, my short-term memory is shot. I do definitely remember BEAF. Because I really thought for a moment that BEEF was spelled BEAF.
I think I haven't been blogging lately for the same reason. No brain power.
Taking this into consideration, I think I'm going to go to bed about three hours early tonight. And try to recharge my batteries properly so as to avoid permanent damage. Good night.
